A student explaining her artworks at IB Mini Art Exhibition

Gr. 11 Visual Art students held a mini-exhibition in the 'Yonkai' Gallery (4th floor of the East Building) to show the artworks they created so far in the IB course and talk about the process behind the work. Even though they are only halfway through their coursework, this exhibition gives them an excellent opportunity to practice talking about their work and helping them to craft their direction before their final Visual Arts Exhibition next year. Great work, Artists!

Gr. 2 Biomes

In their UOI "Sharing the Planet", Gr. 2 students inquired into biomes and how living things depend on each other. They learned about five major biomes(Desert, Tundra, Glassland, Rainforest and Aquatic) and their features, and analyzed and compared different biomes. They also learned about food chains and found that it is important for biomes to be balanced. Watch the videos to see the models of their own balanced biomes they created.
